spring cleaning burns calories!!

Spring is right around the corner!!

It’s that time of year where you get the itch to put some order into your home. Doctors believe that even with short bouts of mild exercise can help improve your fitness level. So yes chores around your house and gardening can burn calories along with stretching and toning your muscles.

All though its not likely to give you a perfect swimsuit body doing some sort of moderate activity for 30 minutes or more ever day can bring some real health benefits. Now if you add the 30 min you spend doing exercising like walking or biking to your 30 minutes of doing chores you are getting a full hour of exercise. If your trying to lose weight it is recommended that you get 60 minutes a day of exercise. Yeah!!

Activity: with Calories Burned every 30 min

My Number 1 favorite thing about cleaning is vacuuming!! It burns: 130
Washing windows: 100
Washing dishes: 75
Washing the car: 155
Moping the floor: 155
Dusting: 85
Gardening: 184
Doing the laundry: 75
Mowing the lawn: 152
Weeding the yard: 155

These are just to name a few, So hop to it! Cleaning counts!

Get Checked!!

If you think you may have type 2 make a Dr appt and GET CHECKED!!  I had 5 out of these 7 symptoms and I was still stubborn going in.  It took 3 extra months of feeling horrible but I really did think I was ill because of my sick new born not because I had diabetes. Now I know different and I want everyone to be tested if they have any of these symptoms.  The sooner you know the sooner you can get treatment and the sooner you will start feeling better.

 

 

I love my new water bottle!!!

Nothing motivates us more to visit the gym than those Olympians wearing gold medals around their necks. To be as successful as an Olympian you need to put in the work and stay hydrated! Contigo’s AUTOSEAL Chill water bottle is a necessity when it comes to staying hydrated at the gym. This 24-ounce insulated bottle can keep liquids cold for up to 28 hours! That’s enough time to hit the gym and run home to watch the highly anticipated Speed Skating or Alpine Skiing events.

I love my Contigo Autoseal Chill water bottle!!  Thank you Contigo for sending them my way.  My son thinks its pretty dang cool as well.  We both use it for the gym, work and all other activities.  I love it because the challenge I am doing calls for drinking 1 gallon of water a day until I got my water bottle.  It really helps me get my water in…  Another big plus is how cold my water stays!!  Such a awesome feature!!

Fresh starts are great and with 2018 here  it’s time to think about what you want for the coming year.

Did you know!!  Jan, 2018, millions  will arise ready to go and be so excited about there goal of getting fit.   Sad but true by the end of January, a whopping 95% of those people will  have failed at those New Year’s resolutions for one reason or another.  We are not going to let you be one of those 95% not this year!!  THIS IS YOUR YEAR!!!!!!

if it’s 10, 30, 60 pounds or even more you want to take off how are you going to do it??
Here are some simple tips to get you started in the right direction.

1. Write it down!! Write it down!!  I can’t stress this enough!!

Map out how you are going to reach your goal. Set goals you can reach. I really do believe if your goals are not written down they are just dreams. When you write them down and put them somewhere you can see them it will set off events that will change your life.

2. Join a support group.

Weight does not just come off. You have to work hard and will need to be accountable. Join a support group where others are striving to reach weight loss goals. Take off pounds sensibly has worked for me. I also have many friends that have been to Overeaters Anonymous. You can find help in face to face meetings or on-line.

3. Make a vision board!

You need to have a clear vision of your goals!  You can feel free to let your imagination wonder as you create your future on this board.  This will help you create what you want from the inside and you can see it daily.

You will need a poster board. You can add sayings and pictures cut out from magazines. Healthy foods, Pictures of people near your ideal weight or even a picture of yourself at your ideal weight. Don’t hold back. You can put pictures that represent you and your dreams. Envision yourself and your new life and make this vision board all about your future.
Now place your board you will see it every day. If you look at it daily it will leave a imprint in your subconscious mind and you will make your board into reality.

4. It’s back to to the basics with eating. Eating healthy and often is the key.

During the holidays it is easy to get out of the habit of eating right. Get rid of the junk food.   6 small meals a day!!  Click here to see a sample of what I eat and how I lost the 100 pounds!

5. You will need to exercise.

Get a workout DVD. There are so many good ones your selection is endless.  If you live locally You will  love taking classes from Elevate Mind and Body studio You can pay as you go or sign up for 5,10, or monthly unlimited classes.  Great price and a wonderful studio also it’s so fun to be with others while getting fit and there is that show up accountability.

Most important thing to remember is consistency is everything. Working out as often as possible will bring great results.

6.  Most of all believe in yourself.
